Based on Marvel character Venom, Venom 2 is an American superhero film sequel to the 2018 release of the same name, that is set to release on the big screen this year. The character Venom was first introduced to us in a Spiderman movie before it got a movie of its own in the MCU universe.
With a well-known character like Venom and in a universe like MCU, unfortunately, Venom didn’t quite make a powerful impression on its fans. With an average of 6+ ratings on IMDb, the film has a fair critical reception. Although the movie didn’t do as well as expected. The presence of Tom Hardy has saved the fans from despair, and his character was strong enough to make people accept sequels.
The film characters, along with Tom Hardy, are now coming back for a sequel, Venom 2, as Sony has announced as early as in January 2019. Venom is the first film in Sony’s Marvel Universe.
Venom 2 Release date
The good news is that Venom 2 already has a release date, which is October 2, 2020. Tom Hardy, who plays the title character Venom, also confirmed that he has signed for another sequel as well, making it a third movie in the Venom series. The trailer should be presented to us sometime during June-July.
Venom 2 plot, Cast and what to expect
The plot of Venom follows a journalist getting superpower from an alien symbiote, whose species plans to invade earth.
So far, it is not easy to say what will be the story, but it’s always safe to assume, but it’s not safe if the symbiote comes back in Venom 2, though.
Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock/Venom, Woody Harelson as Cletus Kasady, Michelle Williams as Anne Weying, Redd Scott, and Naomie Harris are renewing their roles for the sequel. Stephan Graham, according to reports, has also been cast for an undisclosed role. Additionally, few of the reports are saying that Tom Holland will appear in the cast as well, but there’s no official acknowledgment of the same.
The filming for Venom 2 in England completed on 2020 February 8, which is quite recent. After this, the production was moved to San Francisco.
